For as long as humans have gazed at the heavens – the Sun, Moon and Stars – we have wondered at the enormity of how little we know about what lies beyond our own planet Earth.

This deck of 54 illustrated playing cards takes us on a voyage of historical discovery.

From early superstitious beliefs, through advances in astronomical instruments, planetary discoveries and rocket science.

To the latest technologies and spacecraft now exploring our universe and beyond – back to the beginning of time.
